Standard Features of the Concept 4O
✔ Lifetime Warranty —For as long as you own the vehicle, Clifford will
repair or replace the control unit and remote controls free of charge (see
warranty card for full details).
✔ FACT™—False Alarm Control and Test — One of many patented Clifford
innovations, FACT absolutely, positively ends recurring false alarms.
✔ A Pair of 4-Button/12-Channel Remote Controls —Fingertip
command from a
typical range of 100 feet.
✔ AntiScan™ — Some car thieves still use “scanners” that transmit one
digital code after another until they hit the one code that disarms the
alarm. AntiScan blocks scanners to prevent disarming by anyone other
than you.
✔ Anti-CodeGrabbing™ (ACG) with Random Code Encryption— A
code-grabber is a new device that lets a thief record and capture off the
air from a distance the digital code transmitted by your remote control
whenever you arm your car. When you leave, the thief replays the code to
disarm the alarm and unlock your car’s doors. ACG with Random Code
Encryption makes thieves’ code-grabbers completely useless, because
each time you press the button on your remote control a different
random code is transmitted, yet the system will flawlessly recognize and
respond to your transmitter’s new code and ignore all others.
✔ Full-Time Remote Panic with Automatic Door Locking and Unlocking— If
you feel threatened, you can, with just a fingertip touch on your remote control,
sound the siren, flash the parking lights and unlock your vehicle’s power
door locks for quick entry into your car without fumbling with your keys.
If you press the panic button while driving, the siren will sound, the lights
will flash and the doors will lock to shield you from the assailant.
✔ UltraSecure Coded Valet Mode™ — Ensures that no thief can turn off
your Concept 40 like they can all other brands of alarms.
Remote Controlled Valet Mode Entry and Exit — With just a press of a
button on your remote control from up to 100 feet away, you can enter or exit
valet mode. Parking light flashes visually confirm valet mode entry and exit.
3
Standard Features of the Concept 4O (cont.)
✔ Remotely Adjustable Dual-Zone Proximity Sensor™— With just a touch on
the remote, you may, at any time or place, adjust and test the sensitivity
of this microprocessor-controlled passenger compartment sensor. The two
sensor zones provide full perimeter protection: If someone is lurking near
your car, the system will sound a rapid, multi-chirp warning. But if a thief
actually reaches into the passenger compartment, the system will
instantly blast the siren.
Audible Confirmation of Sensor Adjustments — Issues two chirps for each
incremental increase and a single chirp for each incremental decrease in
sensitivity.
Unprecedented Reliability — There are no moving mechanical parts to
wear out and the entire electronic circuitry resides in the passenger
compartment.
Adjust and Test Unobtrusively — Set and test sensitivity without activating
the alarm!
✔ Remote Override of Each Sensor Zone—A press of a button on your
remote control will override the Proximity Sensor’s outer warning zone if
you must park in an area with heavy pedestrian traffic. Another press
overrides both zones if you need to leave a passenger or pet in your
vehicle.
✔ User-Selectable Headlight Reminder— Warns you if you forget to turn off
the headlights after you park your vehicle. If your vehicle already has this
feature, you may turn off Concept 40’s Headlight Reminder.
✔ Dual-Mode “Chirp” Silencing—Whenever you remotely arm or disarm,
the siren “chirps” and the parking lights flash to confirm system status.
Whenever you wish, you may silence the chirps with either of these two
methods:
Remote Controlled Chirp Muting —Just a press of remote control button 3
will arm and disarm the system silently. It’s perfect when parking at night in a
quiet residential area.
Long-Term Chirp Silencing —A few flicks of a switch silences the chirps
until you choose to reactivate them.
4
Standard Features of the Concept 4O (cont.)
✔ Built-In Parking Light Flasher —Visually confirms door lock and system
status.
✔ Remote Controlled Courtesy Lighting —For your personal safety and
convenience, when you remotely disarm your Concept 40, the interior
lights turn on and stay on until you start the engine or 30 seconds,
whichever occurs first.
✔ Remote Door Locking/Unlocking with Built-in Relays — No
more fumbling
with keys in the dark or bad weather! A press of a button on the remote
control simultaneously arms your system and locks your vehicle’s power
locks. Another press disarms and unlocks.
User-Selectable AutoLock™ — Automatically locks the doors the instant
you turn on the ignition to start the engine.
User-Selectable AutoUnLock™ — Automatically unlocks the doors when
you turn off the engine.
Deluxe Remote Keyless Entry in Valet Mode — Use your remote control
to lock and unlock the car doors and remotely activate system accessories
even while the system is in valet mode.
✔ QuietChirp™— Whenever you desire, you may choose to lower the
decibel volume of the arm and disarm chirps to a level that is clearly
audible but less obtrusive than the full-volume chirps. All it takes is a few
flicks of a switch.
✔ Smart Remote Trunk Release Capability — An electronic interlock assures
that the optional remote trunk release can be activated only when the
system is disarmed. To further prevent any possibility of unintentional
opening of the trunk, the interlock also makes sure that the trunk release
cannot be remotely activated while driving.
✔ Remote Window/Sunroof Closure Capability — On certain vehicles
(including several models of Mercedes Benz, Jaguar, Volkswagen and
BMW), the system’s integrated timer and an optional relay can be used to
automatically close the power windows and sunroof every time you
remotely arm your system.
5
Standard Features of the Concept 4O (cont.)
✔ Remote Headlight Activation Capability— Remotely turn on the
headlights to illuminate your way to and from your vehicle (requires an
optional relay).
✔ Patented Smart AutoTesting™—Automatically tests all system triggers
and sensors every time you remotely arm and warns you if you
accidentally arm your Concept 40 system with the hood or trunk open. If
there is a genuine trigger or sensor malfunction, the system will
specifically identify the problem, thereby eliminating time-consuming
and costly trouble-shooting.
✔ Patented Malfunction AutoBypass™ with Automatic Monitoring —In the
unlikely event of a trigger or sensor malfunction, your Concept 40 will
automatically bypass the malfunction and arm all other points to continue
relentless protection of your vehicle. If you simply left the hood, trunk or
a door open when you armed, just close it and the system will again
monitor that trigger point.
✔ Multiple-Event TotalRecall™— Concept 40’s memory stores the identity of
the last eight trigger and sensor activations. This provides an invaluable
diagnostic means, since, whenever you wish, the system will visually
identify the activated triggers and sensors in reverse chronological order.
✔ Patented Smart Prior Intrusion Attempt Alert — When you return to your
vehicle and remotely disarm your Concept 40, a special chirp and parking
light flash sequence will audibly and visually alert you from a distance if
an intrusion attempt was foiled while you were away. Your Concept 40
will even identify the specific trigger or sensor that detected the intrusion
attempt.
✔ Selectable Starter/Ignition Interrupt— You may choose either a fault-proof
mode, which lets you start the engine even in the unlikely event of a
system malfunction, or ultra-secure mode that ensures a thief won’t be
able to start the vehicle even if he finds the system control unit and
disconnects it!
6
Standard Features of the Concept 4O (cont.)
✔ High-Output Insignia Siren — A loud yet compact siren designed exclusively
by Clifford Electronics for far superior performance, features, reliability and
even aesthetics to all other manufacturer’s look-alike, sound-alike sirens.
Ultra-Reliability — Since sirens are installed in the engine compartment,
they’re continually exposed to an unforgiving environment of extreme
temperatures, vibrations, dirt, dust and water, which may cause the siren’s
electronics to fail. But the entire electronic circuitry of the Concept 40 siren
and all of its components have been designed into the underdash control unit.
Consequently, the electronic circuitry is sheltered from the harsh environment
and is no longer the weakest link of the system. In fact, the calculated mean
time between failure (MTBF) of the Concept Insignia Siren is 10 times better
than that of conventional sirens.
User-Selectable Siren Duration — You may set the siren wail for your
choice of either 30 or 60 seconds.
Patented Automatic Noise Abatement —Limit alarm sounding to five
siren duration cycles even if a door is left open in the wake of an intrusion to
ensures against battery drain or towing due to noise pollution. The system
then automatically resets and re-arms all other points.
✔ Enhanced User-Selectable AutoArming™— Automatically arms itself
“passively” if you forget. May qualify you for an insurance discount that
could pay for the system (consult your insurance company).
AutoArming Enable/Disable — You may disable or re-enable AutoArming
with just a few flicks of a switch.
AutoArm & Lock™ — You may set the system to automatically lock the
doors every time the system AutoArms.
Visual Indication — Two parking lights flashes signal that the 30-second
countdown to AutoArming has started.
15-Second Entry Delay — If you ever temporarily lose the use of your
remote controls, an entry delay allows you to enter the vehicle and disarm the
system without sounding the siren.
Instant AutoArm Bypass — Just a quick turn of the ignition switch will
bypass AutoArming for one cycle — perfect when fueling the vehicle.
AutoArming is automatically restored the next time you park.
✔ Control Unit with 4 Channels— For remote controlled system operation
and accessories.
7
Standard Features of the Concept 4O (cont.)
✔ Patented Remote Control Code Learning — Just a few flicks of a switch
lets you match to the system up to 4 different 12-channel Clifford remote
controls. Just as easily, a lost or stolen remote control can be deleted from
the system memory.
✔ Multiple-Car Control— Lets you use the same remote to control up to
seven different vehicles.
✔ Advanced CMOS Microcomputer —Very large scale integration (VLSI)
microprocessor commands and monitors all system functions more than
1,000,000 times per second, yet it draws less power than the vehicle’s
clock, so it won’t deplete your car battery like other alarms.
✔ High-Luminescence LED Status Indicator with Automatic Battery-Saving
Mode — Adds visual deterrence and identifies system status. To conserve
vehicle battery power, if the system has remained continuously armed for
48 hours, the flash rate will automatically slow to half the normal rate. If
left continuously armed for 96 hours, the blink rate will slow to
one-quarter the normal rate.
✔ Multiple Sensor/Trigger Inputs— Separate inputs for two sensors as well as
separate inputs for the doors, trunk and hood for precise trigger/sensor
identification.
— When power to the system is
disconnected, the system’s non-volatile memory always remembers the
last state (armed, disarmed or valet mode) and returns to that state when
power is restored. So if a thief disconnects the power and then restores it
in an attempt to start the car, the system will re-arm and instantly sound
the siren while immobilizing the vehicle.
✔ Patented SmartPowerUp™ II
✔ Full-Time Programming Access— You can easily change the status of
nearly 20 different user-selectable features at any time, even while
driving. Clear, audible signals confirm each feature selection and setting.

Welcome to the world of high-technology
vehicle security and convenience
ongratulations on the purchase of your Concept 40 vehicle
security/convenience system. Clifford Electronics has long been
recognized as the world’s leading manufacturer of high-technology
vehicle security systems and accessories. In fact, Clifford Electronics
holds more patents than all other vehicle security manufacturers
combined. Buying Clifford has always meant buying the best, and
nowhere is our commitment to technological innovation, reliability and
quality more evident than in the astounding Concept 40.
Your Concept 40 is loaded with protective features and lifestyle
convenience benefits that other car alarm companies don’t even have on
their wish lists, let alone their alarms. Features like Anti-CodeGrabbing™
that fights off the latest and most onerous threat from high-tech thieves.
A thief equipped with a code-grabber can record with total impunity the
codes of your car alarm’s remote control from up to several hundred
feet away. How? The thief simply waits for you to arm or disarm your
alarm with your remote control. The thief’s portable, pocket-sized
code-grabber will automatically pick and record the transmitted code
off the air. As soon as you walk away, he simply plays it back, instantly
disarming your alarm and unlocking the doors. It’s like giving the thief
your car keys. Code-grabbing will instantly defeat all other brands of
remote controlled car alarms, regardless of whether they are equipped
with anti-scanning or trillions of digital codes.
Clifford’s unique PlainView Coded Valet Switch ensures that no thief
can turn off your Concept 40 like they can with all other car alarm
brands. For total freedom from incorrectly adjusted sensors, there’s
remote controlled adjustment of the system’s dual-zone radar sensor
that allows you to set the desired sensitivity level any place or time
with just a touch of a button on your remote control. Plus there’s
remote controlled valet mode, remote controlled override of one or both
Proximity Sensor zones, remote controlled timed headlight activation
capability, an electronic interlock to prevent accidental activation of the
optional remote trunk release, smart automatic locking/unlocking if you
ever “panic” the system, full-time programming access (even while
driving), and much, much more.
Yet despite all the sophistication, the Concept 40 is amazingly easy to
use: never more difficult than a few flicks of a switch or a press of a
button on one of your miniature keychain remote controls.

Your 4-button/12-channel remote controls
The 4-button/12-channel remote controls are ultra-sophisticated miniature radio
transmitters powered by a tiny 12-volt battery. Range is up to 100 feet. A weak remote
control battery will reduce range. Electrical interference and even sunspots can interrupt
the signal from your remote control to the system. If this happens, repeatedly press the
remote control button (this works better than holding the button down). The
4-button/12-channel remote control is the key to your system. It incorporates Clifford’s
Anti-CodeGrabbing™ (ACG) technology for the ultimate protection against
“code-grabbing” devices (see page 13). You will use your remote control to arm and
disarm the system, lock and unlock the doors, activate the panic feature, adjust sensor
sensitivity, enable/exit valet mode, override one or both zones of the Proximity Sensor,
command options such as a remote trunk release, timed headlight activation, power
window operation, electric garage door interface and even remote starting of the engine
and heater or air conditioner, among other options.
How to use your keychain remote control
Your remote control can individually command up to 12 different system functions and
options. It’s like having a TV with 12 channels. You change channels (functions) with
your keychain remote control. But instead of putting 12 buttons on the remote, we made
it easy: First, the button you use the most — button 1 to arm, disarm, lock and unlock —
is larger than the others. Buttons 2, 3 and 4 are the smaller buttons to the right, below and left
of button 1. The LevelShift button on the side of the remote control allows you to select
channels 5–12:
To transmit either channel 1, 2, 3 or 4:
Just press either button 1, 2, 3 or 4. For
instance, to transmit channel 3, press
button 3. While you transmit, the LED
indicator will blink once every second:
this indicates level 1.
To transmit either channel 5, 6, 7 or 8:
Press the LevelShift button once. This
shifts buttons 1–4 to level 2 (channels
5–8). Then press the desired button
within the next 7 seconds. For instance, to transmit channel 5, press the LevelShift
button once, then press button 1. While you transmit, you’ll notice that the LED
indicator blinks twice, pauses, blinks twice, etc.: this indicates level 2.
To transmit channel 9, 10, 11 or 12: Press the LevelShift button twice. This
shifts buttons 1–4 to level 3 (channels 9–12). Then press the corresponding button
within the next 7 seconds. For instance, to transmit channel 10, press the LevelShift
button twice, then press button 2. While you transmit, you’ll notice that the LED
blinks three times, pauses, blinks three times, etc.: this indicates level 3.
NOTE: One second after you stop transmitting level 2 or level 3 (channels 5–12), the
remote control automatically returns to level 1 (channels 1–4).
10
What each button/channel does
Your Concept 40 remote controls come pre-programmed so that certain channels
command certain functions. If you wish, you can actually assign any channel except 9
through 12 to any function (see pages 20-24). The following chart indicates what each
remote control channel number does, and how to transmit each channel number.

acknowledgments.
11
TO ACTIVATE
THE PANIC
FEATURE . . . . . . . . . .
Press button 1 (channel 1) for 3 seconds. The parking lights will
flash repeatedly and the siren will blare for 30 or 60 seconds
(user-selectable), or until you press button 1 again to turn it off. If
the ignition is on (indicating you are in the car), the doors will
automatically lock to prevent an assailant from entering. If the
ignition is off, the doors will unlock, allowing you to enter
immediately without fumbling with your keys.
TO REMOTELY

such as the IntelliStart remote engine starter, remote power
window control, electric garage door and entry gate opener(s),
Concept systems on your other vehicles, etc.
What about
Channels 9 through 12 control remote valet mode entry/exit (see
channels 9 – 12?. . . . page 15), remote override of one or both Proximity Sensor zones
(see page 17), and remote adjustment of each of the two
Proximity Sensor zones (see page 17).
How to interpret the chirps and parking light flashes
When you use the remote control, the system responds with chirps (unless the chirp muting
feature is turned on) and parking light flashes. These chirp/flash acknowledgments mean:
Chirps and flashes
Meaning
1
Your system is disarmed or you have remotely exited valet mode (see page 15)
2
Your system is armed or you have remotely engaged valet mode (see page 15)
2 and then 4
Armed but there is a door open (if there was a 5-sec. delay) or the sensor is
malfunctioning (if there was a 10-sec. delay) (see Smart AutoTesting on page 18)
3
Disarmed but there was an intrusion attempt while you were away
(see Smart prior intrusion attempt on page 19)
4
Armed but the hood or trunk is ajar (see Smart AutoTesting on page 18)

Anti-CodeGrabbing™ (ACG) with Random Code Encryption
A Clifford exclusive that protects you and your automobile from the most effective and
onerous car stealing device ever used by car thieves — a code-grabber. Code-grabbers
are far more effective and efficient than scanning. Unlike scanners that sequentially
transmit one digital code after another until they hit the correct code to disarm the alarm
(a process that may take minutes to years depending on the system’s total number of
codes), code-grabbers literally record, from hundreds of feet away, the code sent by your
car alarm remote control. Then the thief simply plays back the code when you’re gone,
instantly disarming the alarm and unlocking the doors. It’s like giving the thief your car
keys. Non-Clifford alarms can be defeated that easily. In contrast, Concept Series
systems use complex digital signal processing and unbreachable encryption to randomly
change the digital code every time you use the remote control. Your remote will never
transmit the same code twice, and the control unit will never accept the same code
twice. Thus the code recorded and played back by the thief’s code-grabber will never be
accepted by your Concept 40. Only ACG can make a car alarm impervious to
code-grabbing, and only Clifford systems have ACG with Random Code Encryption.
Enhanced AutoArming™
If this feature is enabled and you forget to remotely arm, the system will automatically arm
itself 30 seconds after the vehicle doors are closed. For your convenience, if you re-open any
door(s) within the 30-second countdown, AutoArming will restart from the beginning once
all doors are closed. Concept 40 has these additional AutoArming features:
AutoArming enable/disable: If you prefer, you may deactivate or reactivate the
AutoArming feature. See User-selectable features on pages 20-24.
Visual acknowledgment: Five seconds after you exit the vehicle and close all
the doors, the parking lights will flash twice to confirm that the AutoArming
countdown is progressing. Then, 25 seconds later, the system will AutoArm.
AutoArm & Lock: To ensure you can’t accidentally lock your keys inside the car,
the system is factory-set not to lock the doors upon AutoArming. To change this
setting, see User-selectable features on pages 20-24.
User-selectable entry delay: If you temporarily lose the use of your remote
controls, you may turn on the 15-second entry delay feature. This allows you to
enter the car and silently disarm the system by turning on the ignition within 15
seconds of opening the door. See User-selectable features on pages 20-24.
Instant AutoArming bypass: Prevents AutoArming when fueling the vehicle and
other times when you wish to temporarily bypass AutoArming. To activate Instant
AutoArming Bypass, rapidly turn the ignition switch to “ON” then “OFF.” You
will hear a single siren chirp to confirm that the system will not AutoArm. The
system reverts to its normal operating mode when you next start the engine.
Headlight Reminder
If you turn the ignition off and open the driver’s door to exit the car without having turned
off the headlights, you will be reminded to turn them off with a distinctive rapid, multi-chirp
warning. If your vehicle already has a similar warning feature, you may turn off the Concept
40 Headlight Reminder feature. See User-selectable features on pages 20-24.

UltraSecure™ Coded Valet Mode
Your secret valet code
In seconds, thieves can disable all other alarm brands by hotwiring the ignition and flicking
an easy to find “hidden” valet switch. Your system has safeguards that absolutely ensure
a thief cannot enable the valet mode as a way of “turning off” your system. How? To
enable valet mode, the driver must first enter a secret valet code on the PlainView switch.
Your code will be a 1-to-3-digit number of your choosing. Each digit can be any number
from 1 to 9, (i.e. the code can be any number between 1 and 999, except those that
contain a zero). Whenever the system is in valet mode, it overrides the AutoArming
feature (see page 13) and all the security features are turned off. At various times, you will
need to switch the system off. For instance, when having your car serviced, washed or
parked by a valet.
Your factory-set valet code is the single digit “2.”
NOTE: If you temporarily lose the use of your remote controls, you can disarm
the system by enabling valet mode.
Definitions
Digit: A digit is defined as any number from 1 to 9, inclusive.
Valet code: A valet code may be 1 to 3 digits:
A one-digit code=X=any number between 1-9
A two-digit code=XY=any number between 11-99 (excluding numbers with zeros)
A three-digit code=XYZ=any number between 111-999 (excluding numbers with zeros)
Remember, no code can have a zero.
PlainView switch: A rocker switch mounted on the dashboard or console. The
switch has three positions: 1.) Latched 2.) Center 3.) Spring-loaded momentary.
When you press the latched side, the switch remains in its pressed position. When
you press the momentary side, the switch bounces back to the center position.
Entering a digit: To enter a digit, you tap (press and release) on the momentary
side of the PlainView switch the number of times corresponding to the numeral of
the digit to be entered, followed by pressing to the latched side, then returning the
switch to its center position.
Entering a code: If your code has only one digit, enter the code as described in
“Entering a digit.” If your code has more than one digit, just repeat the above for
each digit of your code.
To enable valet mode
1. Turn the ignition switch to its “ON” position or start the engine.
2. Enter your secret valet code on the PlainView switch, then return the switch to its
center position.
3. You now have 5 seconds to press the latched position to enter valet mode. The
system’s LED will glow continually for on-going visual confirmation of valet mode.
14
To exit valet mode
1. Turn the ignition switch to its “ON” position or start the engine.
2. Flick the switch back to its center position. The LED will turn off to confirm that the
system is now in its normal operating mode.
Setting your own secret valet code
Since all Concept Series systems have the same factory-set code, it is highly advisable
that you set your own valet code. You may choose any 1-, 2-, or 3-digit code that does
not have any zeros. You can also change your valet code whenever you want. Simply
write down the 1-to-3 digit code you wish to use (remember, no zeros in the code), then
refer to the User-selectable features section on pages 20-24.
Example
Let’s say you want to set your valet code to 31. To do so, you would do the following:
1. From the Table of user-selectable features on pages 23 and 24, you would note that
the “set a new secret valet code” feature is in column 3, row 6.
2. Enter program mode by turning on the ignition, entering your current valet code, then
pressing the PlainView switch to its momentary side for 3 seconds until you hear a chirp.
3. Select column 3 by moving the switch between latched and center 3 times, i.e.:
latched, center, latched, center, latched, center. After a brief pause, you will hear 3
chirps to confirm that you have selected feature column 3.
4. Select row 6 by pressing and releasing the momentary side of the switch 6 times. To
help you count, you will hear a chirp each time you press the momentary side.
5. Immediately flip the switch to the latched position.
6. Enter you new code. To enter 31 as your new code, you would press the switch in
this manner: momentary, momentary, momentary, latched (you’ll hear 3 chirps to
confirm the first digit), momentary, latched (1 chirp to confirm the second digit), center.
7. Wait 3 seconds until you hear 2 chirps, indicating the new code has been accepted.
8. Turn off the ignition to exit program mode (you’ll hear a 3-chirp confirmation).
9. VERY IMPORTANT: You must immediately test your new secret valet code:
Turn on the ignition, enter your new code, then flip the switch to its latched position.
The LED will illuminate. If it does not, the new code you programmed and the one you
just entered do not match. In such a case, the system will revert to the previous code.
Remote controlled valet mode entry and exit
You can even enable or exit valet mode with your remote control simply by transmitting
channel 9 (LevelShift twice, then button 1). In addition to the above indications, two
parking light flashes will confirm that you have remotely enabled valet mode, while a
single flash confirms exiting of valet mode.
Keyless entry in valet mode
Even if valet mode is enabled, you can still remotely control the convenience features.
For instance, simply press button 1 (channel 1) as if you were disarming and the doors
will unlock (indicated by one parking light flash) and the interior lights will turn on. Press
button 1 again and the doors lock (confirmed by two flashes). You can also use the other
channels to activate options such as a remote trunk release or remote engine starting.
15
FACT™— False Alarm Control and Test
With FACT, you’ll never experience repeated false alarms. If the Insignia Siren goes
off, DO NOT remotely disarm the system; allow it to run for the full siren duration.
Before sounding the siren a second time, the system automatically checks for another
activated trigger to verify that an intrusion is in progress. Should the siren sound again,
you will know for sure that someone is tampering with your vehicle. (To disable FACT,
see User-selectable features on pages 20-24.)
Selectable starter/ignition interrupt
At the time of installation, you can select whether your Concept 40 interrupts the starter
line or the ignition line. To verify which line is electronically interrupted, enter the
vehicle, close the doors, arm the system while inside the vehicle, then try to start the
engine. If the engine cranks but does not start, the ignition is bypassed. If it does not
crank at all, the starter is disabled.
In addition, the starter/ignition interrupt will be set in either Fault-Proof mode, which
lets you start the engine even in the unlikely event of a complete system failure, or
Super-Security mode that ensures a thief won’t be able to start the engine even if he cuts
all the wires or finds the system control unit and disconnects it.
Changing the mode requires a minor relay wiring change and installer-only programming.
Your local Authorized Clifford Dealer can make the changes for you.
Smart trunk release option
If the remote trunk release feature was installed, you may use remote control button 2 to
remotely pop the trunk. Your system has a built-in electronic interlock to prevent unintentional activation of the remote trunk release when you drive, or when the system is armed.
How to interpret the LED status indicator
The LED on your car’s dashboard or console will inform you of the system status:
LED Condition
Meaning
Off
System is disarmed and in normal operating mode (i.e., valet mode is off)
On
Valet mode is on, the vehicle can be driven or serviced without having to disarm
Flashing
System is armed and protecting your vehicle
Pause between flashes
Either a malfunction (see page 18) or an intrusion was attempted (see page 19)
Automatic Battery-Saving Mode
To conserve vehicle battery power (the LED draws more current than the entire control
unit), if the system has remained continuously armed for 48 hours, the flash rate will
automatically slow to half the normal rate. After 96 hours, it slows to one-quarter.
16
Remote controlled sensor adjustments
Due to ever-changing conditions, all alarms require periodic fine-tuning of their sensors.
Other alarms require repeated trips back to the dealer. Not so with Concept 40. You can
adjust sensitivity of each sensor zone electronically without tools and without even knowing
where the sensors are mounted! If the setting of one or both Proximity Sensor zones is
either too sensitive or not sensitive enough, you may individually test and adjust the
settings of each zone. To adjust the Proximity Sensor, just use the following procedure:
1. Disarm the system with the remote control, open the driver’s window, then select the
sensor zone you wish to adjust:
a. Interior zone: Transmit channel 11 (LevelShift twice, then button 3).
b. Exterior zone: Transmit channel 12 (LevelShift twice, then button 4).
2. To test the current sensitivity setting:
a. Interior zone: Lean into the passenger compartment. You will hear a chirp when
the zone detects your presence. Ideally, it should chirp when you lean over the
driver’s seat, but remain silent when you lean toward the window.
b. Exterior zone: Lean toward the window. You’ll hear a chirp when the zone
detects you. Ideally, it should only chirp when you are within one foot of the window.
3. If you are not satisfied with the detection level and wish to increase sensitivity, press
button 2 on your remote control. To decrease it, press button 4. Each time you
increase sensitivity, the siren will sound two chirps. Conversely, each sensitivity
decrease is confirmed with a single chirp. Three chirps indicate minimum and
maximum settings. There are 32 sensitivity levels for the Proximity Sensor’s interior
zone; 16 for the less critical warning zone.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 until you are satisfied with the sensitivity, then press button 1
to record the new sensitivity setting and exit the sensor test/adjust mode (you’ll hear
three chirps to confirm exit). You may now either repeat steps 1–4 for the other
sensor zone, or press button 1 again to arm the system.
Sound complicated? It really isn’t, there’s just a lot of explanation of what’s happening
with each step. All you really have to do is the actions noted in bold type. Give it a try.
Remote controlled override of one or both sensor zones
Transmitting channel 10 within 10 seconds of arming the system will override the
exterior warning zone of the Proximity Sensor (you’ll see 4 parking light flashes to
confirm the zone override). This is useful when parking in an area with heavy pedestrian
traffic. Transmitting channel 10 again within the 10 second period will override both
zones of the sensor for those times when you must leave a passenger or pet in the
vehicle. The sensor zones are automatically restored the next time you arm the system.
AutoLock and AutoUnLock™
For your safety and that of your passengers, the doors automatically lock the instant you
turn on the ignition (see User-selectable features on pages 20-24). When you turn the
ignition off, AutoUnLock automatically unlocks the doors. To suit your preferences, you
may turn off either or both the AutoLock and/or AutoUnLock features. There are four
possibilities: AutoLock “on” while AutoUnLock is “off”, or vice-versa. The other two
combinations are both AutoLock and AutoUnLock “on” or both “off.”
17
Smart AutoTesting™
Each time you remotely arm the system, it tests all triggers and sensors. If the hood or
trunk is open when you remotely arm, the system will immediately alert you of the problem
by sounding 4 chirps and 4 parking light flashes instead of the usual 2 and 2. If a door
is ajar, you will receive the usual 2 chirps and flashes, then, 5 seconds later, there will
be 4 chirps and 4 flashes. (This door ajar warning will not work on vehicles that have
factory-delayed courtesy lights). If a sensor is malfunctioning, you will receive the usual
2 chirps and 2 flashes, then, 10 seconds later, there will be 4 chirps and 4 flashes.
NOTE: Since this is a warning indication, you will hear the 4 chirps even if you
have the chirp muting feature turned on.
Specific malfunction identification: The system can also indicate the specific
trigger or sensor that is malfunctioning. If you get the 4-chirp/4-flash signal upon
arming, perform the following to identify the malfunctioning trigger or sensor:
1. Remotely disarm, then turn on the ignition. The LED status indicator inside your
vehicle will be flashing, pause, then repeat.
2. Count the number of blinks in one cycle between pauses (for your convenience, the
blink cycle repeats a total of 5 times) and refer to the chart below:
Number of LED blinks between pauses
Trigger/sensor indication
1 blink
Proximity Sensor
2 blinks
Optional Sensor
3 blinks*
Door trigger*
4 blinks
Trunk trigger
5 blinks
Hood trigger
* If your vehicle has a factory-installed feature that turns off or dims the interior courtesy lights
several seconds after you exit the vehicle, the system cannot provide this indication.
Automatic malfunction bypass
To provide the utmost protection even if a system component malfunctions, the system
will automatically bypass any faulty point and arm all other triggers and sensors to
provide the utmost possible protection until you can have the system serviced by your
local Authorized Clifford Dealer. If you accidentally armed with the hood, trunk or a
door open, just close the open point and the system will again monitor that point.
Multiple-event TotalRecall™
The system’s memory records the identity of the last 8 activated or malfunctioning triggers
and sensors, which allows your installer to instantly track down a malfunction. To identify
the triggers and sensors held in the system’s memory, use the following procedure:
1. With the ignition OFF, flick the PlainView valet switch to its latched side.
2. Press button 1 to “arm” the system, then again to “disarm.”
3. The LED will blink 1–5 times to indicate the most recently activated point, pause,
blink 1-5 times to indicated the next most recently activated point, and so on.
4. Write down the number of blinks between pauses and refer to the chart above.
18
Smart prior intrusion attempt alert
If you hear three chirps when you remotely disarm, it means that a trigger or sensor was
activated in your absence. When you enter the vehicle and turn on the ignition (or start
the engine), the LED will blink 1–5 times, pause, then repeat the blink cycle 4 more
times. Count the number of blinks in one cycle and refer to the chart on page 18.
SmartPowerUp™ II
If power to the system is ever removed, SmartPowerUp II ensures the system will
automatically restore itself to its previous state when power is restored. So if a thief
disconnects the power and then restores it in an attempt to start the car, the system will
re-arm and instantly sound the siren while immobilizing the vehicle. If your vehicle is to
be serviced by a mechanic, just put the system in valet mode via the remote control (see
Remote controlled valet mode entry and exit on page 15). If the mechanic needs to
interrupt power, your system will automatically return to its valet mode state when
power is restored; there will be no alarm activation and no need to provide your
mechanic with your remote control and instructions on how to use it.
High-output Insignia™ Siren
All the siren electronics are in the system control unit rather than the siren itself. This
protects them from heat, dirt and exposure to the elements (other alarm companies’
sirens are far more susceptible to failure). Your Concept 40 also provides these
additional features:
QuietChirps™: You can control the volume of the normal arm and disarm
chirps. As shipped from the factory, your system issues full-volume chirp
acknowledgments. If you prefer, you may reduce the chirp volume to a level that
is clearly audible, yet less obtrusive. See the User-selectable features section on
pages 20-24.
Long-term chirp silencing: Whenever you wish, you may silence your Concept
40’s arm and disarm chirps until you decide to restore them. The parking light
flashes will continue to provide visual confirmation of remote controlled arming
and disarming. See User-selectable features on pages 20-24.
Remote controlled chirp muting: Remote controlled chirp muting capabilities
are especially valuable when parking late at night in a quiet residential area or any
other time when you want to arm or disarm silently. To arm or disarm silently,
simply press button 3 (channel 3) on your remote control instead of the usual
button 1 (channel 1).
Siren duration: When the system detects an intrusion attempt, the alarm is set to
sound for 30 seconds. However, if you prefer, you may change it to 60 seconds.
See the User-selectable features section on pages 20-24.
19
User-selectable features
Your Concept 40 allows you to set many of its features to your own personal
preferences. Although the system’s programming capabilities are very extensive, we
have made the programming procedures very simple: to make a change, you just flick
the PlainView switch a few times. Once you’ve changed a few settings, you’ll find that
programming Concept 40 is so easy that you can even do it while driving! The system
comes with all of its features pre-programmed as noted by the bold type in the Table of
user-selectable features on pages 23-24. To change any of the settings, use the steps
noted below. To restore the feature to its factory setting, just repeat the procedure:
How to change a user-selectable feature:
Briefly, here’s how it will work:
• You will pick a feature from the Table on pages 23-24, noting the feature’s
column and row numbers.
• First you’ll need to get into program mode by entering your valet code (see page
14). After you have entered your code, press the momentary side of the PlainView
switch until you hear a chirp. You’re now in the “Feature Select” position.
• Next you’ll press the latched side of the switch a number of times identical to the
column number. Lastly, you will press the momentary side of the switch a number
of times corresponding to the row number.
That’s all there is to it! After you enter the feature’s column and row numbers, you’ll
hear either one chirp to indicate that the feature has been turned off, or two chirps if
turned on. It’s easy once you’ve done it. Try the examples on page 21 to get the hang of it.
Step-by-step programming instructions
1. Refer to the Table of user-selectable features and make note of the column (across)
number and the row (down) number of the feature(s) you wish to program.
2. Turn on the ignition, or start the engine (skip this step if the engine is running).
3. Enter your valet code (see page 14), then press the PlainView switch to its momentary
side for about 3 seconds until you hear a siren chirp (the system LED will also turn
on to indicate program mode.) You are now in the “Feature Select” position.
4. Select the feature column: Toggle the switch in and out of the latched position the
same number of times as the column number of the selected feature (NOTE: each
latched-to-center motion is counted as one). Pause. You will hear the same number
of chirps as the column number you have selected, audibly confirming your selection.
5. Select the feature row: Press and release the momentary side the same number of
times as the feature’s row number. You’ll will hear a chirp each time you press.
6. If there is a NOTE for the selected feature, perform the actions noted.
7. Pause. You will hear either one or two chirps: Two chirps = ON, one chirp = OFF.
8. You may select another feature, or you may exit program mode:
a. To select another feature in that column, repeat step 5 within the next 10 seconds
(after 10 seconds, 3 chirps mean you are now back in the “Feature Select” position).
b. To select a different feature column, go to step 4.
c. To exit program mode, turn the ignition off (you’ll hear 3 chirps and the LED will
turn off to indicate exit of program mode). If driving, just wait 60 seconds and the
system will automatically exit program mode.
20
EXAMPLE 1: Turn off Headlight Reminder:
If you park your car and begin to exit while the headlights are still on, the Headlight
Reminder feature is set to issue a warning sound to remind you to turn them off (see
Headlight Reminder on page 13) To turn this feature off, you’ll note that “Headlight
Reminder” in column 1, row 6 of the Table (on pages 23-24). The “on” in bold type
indicates the factory setting. The following example will turn off Headlight Reminder:
1. To enter program mode, turn on the ignition, enter your valet code (as noted on
page 14), then hold the switch in its momentary position until you hear a chirp.
2. Select column 1 by pressing latched and then back to center (wait for the one
chirp to confirm column 1). To select row 6, press momentary six times (you’ll
hear a chirp each time you press the momentary side).
3. After a brief pause, you’ll hear one chirp to confirm that Headlight Reminder is
now off.
4. Turn the ignition off. You’ll hear 3 chirps, confirming automatic exit from the
program mode, and you’re done!
If you make an error, just turn off the ignition and start again. To turn Headlight
Reminder back on, just repeat steps 1–4. In step 3, you’ll hear two chirps to confirm that
the feature has been turned back on. Remember, one chirp = off, two chirps = on.
NOTE: You have 10 seconds to enter the row number after selecting the column
number. If you wait too long, the system jumps back to the “Feature Select” position
(this is indicated with 3 chirps). If you wait another 60 seconds, the system will exit
program mode.
In Example 2 below, you’ll learn how easy it is to change the settings of several
different features in just one session, without having to repeatedly turn the ignition on
and off:
EXAMPLE 2: Turn off AutoLock and AutoUnLock, then change siren duration to 60 sec.:
This time, we will change the settings of three different features in just one
programming session: We will turn off both the AutoLock and AutoUnLock features
(see page 17), as well as change the siren duration to 60 seconds (see page 19). Here’s
all you have to do:
1. Enter program mode as previously noted (ignition on, enter your valet code, press
the momentary side until you here a chirp).
2. Since AutoLock is in column 2, row 1 of the Table, you will have to enter the
latched side twice and the momentary side once. Therefore, move the switch to
latched, center, latched, center. Wait for the two chirps to confirm the selection of
column 2. Within 10 seconds, press and release the momentary side of the switch
once (you will hear a chirp when you press it). After a brief pause, you’ll hear 1
chirp to confirm that AutoLock is now off.
3. Since AutoUnLock is in column 2, row 2 and is in the same column as you just
entered for AutoLock, there is no need in this case to again select column 2.
Therefore, you can go right away to the row selection (momentary side of the
switch). Now, within 10 seconds, press the momentary side two times to jump to
row 2. After a brief pause, you’ll hear 1 chirp to confirm that AutoUnLock is now
off.
continued . . .
21
4. Now look up the location on the table of siren duration. Note that it’s in column 3,
row 5 (latched, center, latched, center, latched, center, wait for the 3-chirp/column
3 confirmation, then 5 momentary presses). After a brief pause, you’ll hear two
chirps to confirm that the siren duration is now set to 60 seconds.
5. To exit the program mode, turn the ignition off. You’ll hear 3 chirps to confirm
program mode exit.
You just made three programming changes in only five steps. Easy, isn’t it? Notice
again that in step 3 on the previous page you did not have to re-select column 2. If you
don’t touch the switch, the system stays in the column for 10 seconds to allow you to
select any other feature(s) in the same column without having to re-enter the column
number. Of course, you can select a new column at any time.
If you wait more than 10 seconds, the system automatically jumps back to the “Feature
Select” position. This is the “stand-by” position: ready for entry of a new programming
selection. If no action is taken for the next 60 seconds, the system automatically exits
program mode, perfect if you program while driving or if you forget to turn off the
ignition.
Adding new remote controls
For other drivers in your family, or if you wish to control Concept systems on your other
cars with the same remote control, you can buy additional remote controls from any
Clifford Dealer and program them into the system yourself. Each Concept 40 will
respond to as many as four 12-channel remote controls. To add a new remote control to
the system, use the procedures noted in the User-selectable features section on pages
20-24.
How to erase the codes of lost or stolen remote controls
If one of your remote controls is ever lost or stolen, you can erase its digital codes from
the system memory to make sure that the missing remote control can never be used to
disarm your system. To do so, use the “Erase all channels” feature (feature column 1,
row 5 on the Table of user-selectable features on pages 23-24). This will clear all
remote control codes from the system memory. Then simply program each remaining
and/or replacement remote control as noted in the Adding new remote controls section
above.

your Concept 40).
NOTE 6: The headlight timer starts as soon as you select this feature. When the
duration you wish has been reached, press button 1 on the remote control. You
will hear two chirps to confirm the new headlight timer duration.
NOTE 7: Immediately flip the switch to its latched position, then:
a. Enter the new code that you wish to use. The system will sound the same
number of chirps as the digit you choose when you move the switch to the
latched side (e.g., if the first digit is 4, you’ll hear four chirps when you
press the latched side).
b. Make sure to return the switch to its center position when complete.
c. Wait 3 seconds until you hear 2 chirps, indicating the new code has been
accepted.
d. Turn the ignition off. You’ll hear 3 chirps to confirm program mode exit
and the LED will turn off.
e. VERY IMPORTANT: You must immediately test your new secret
disarming/valet code: Turn the ignition on, enter your new code, then flip
the switch to its latched position. The LED will illuminate. If it does not,
the new code you programmed and the one you just entered do not match.
The system has reverted to the previous code.
